Seems pretty intense. I have a pretty powerful PC and a 360, but I'll probably get the game on 360, because then I can play it at LAN parties with my friends. Seems like it will be a great one for local play.

Cool. Now I finally know what Mitch looks like as I've only heard him in some podcasts and interviews. I hear the beta is going great for this game. Can't wait for it to ship.

I hope they release a demo of the game. It sounds cool but I'm still on the fence.

Mitch seems like a really cool guy, I bet it is fun to work for him. I really enjoyed that vid and my intrest is peaked even more (And I didn't think that was even possible) Listening to him speak about this game and the indusrty as a whole was almost inspiring. I REALLY can't wait, just wish I could have gotten in on the beta.........

I usually buy these games on PC, but I am getting better at FPS with a controller, I just had to get used to it. Do I still prefer keyboard/mouse? Yes, but I hope I will get better or maybe hopefully M$ will offer a keyboard and mouse with support for games.

First comment! I don't understand, the keyboard and mouse vs. controller are exactly the same, though controllers have a really high skill curve. My friend is really good at Halo 2, looks like he's playing with a keyboard and mouse. So, I'm wondering if the game controls for the PC are really weird if controllers were winning first. Unless the controller players happen to be hardcore console FPS players.
